The future of Weblogging

There is much to celebrate in the development of Weblogging but the discussion of it is often uncritical and un-ambitious. If Weblogging is the answer, as so many claim it is, what was the question?

It follows from this view that the Internet in general, and Weblogging in particular, are conscious answers to these challenges. Nico MacdonaldThe future of Weblogging (The Register)
